Author Jen Kimberley was building a life for herself in Denver, Colorado after the death of her husband from lung cancer when she was accidentally diagnosed with leukemia. In My Cancer Survival Saga, she shares her personal story. Her narrative covers mistakes she made, things she learned the hard way, and people who helped her. It describes her first encounters with alternative cancer treatments such as IPT and hyperthermia; her changes in diet and lifestyle that removed toxins and increased oxygen levels; and the weight loss and weakness known as cachexia and coming out of it alive and strong despite conventional predictions. In sidebars, she offers helpful and educational information for readers who want to know more about treatment options other than chemotherapy, radiation, and surgery; and she teaches how best to work towards a cure rather than just remission. Along with five of Jens entertaining poems, My Cancer Survival Saga also offers five sections on energy work to start clearing, validating, and protecting your own space. These include specific tools anyone can learn to use that remove stress and increase personal confidence.

Many books explain the different types of prostate cancer treatments, but most end once a treatment choice has been made, offering readers little in the way of guidance through the challenges of the post-treatment period. After Prostate Cancer picks up where those books leave off. Dr. Arnold Melman, Chair of the Department of Urology at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, offers a thorough description of what the prostate cancer recovery process is like and what readers can do to optimize recovery and attain the best possible health and long-term prognosis.

Prostate cancer is now the most common male cancer in the western world, excluding non-melanoma skin cancer. In the United States over 2.5 million men are living with a diagnosis of prostate cancer; in the UK over 250,000 men, and in Australia over 120,000 men. For each man who has had prostate cancer, there will be people close who care about them, and love them, who are also deeply affected. This book provides practical strategies to help cope with the emotional and psychological stress of living with prostate cancer and to regain a sense of ease about the situation in which you may find yourself. Written by one of the world’s leading researchers into the psychological effects of cancer and how best to provide support for individuals and couples, it is structured so that the reader can choose whatever chapter seems most relevant right now. Personal stories and insights from men and their partners offer emotional comfort and inspiration throughout. While everyone’s experience of prostate cancer is uniquely their own there is nothing quite like the wisdom that comes from others who have already walked the path.
